Description Bernhard Reiter 2012-02-01 05:30:08 UTC
Although it's already possible to add the presentation *notes* to the exported PDF, there doesn't seem to be a way to add the *handouts*. 

Most importantly, there should be an option to export *only* handouts, or notes, to PDF, omitting the actual presentation slides.

in 3.5.1 not yet implemented in File->Export to PDF
Meanwhile on Linux we should use File->Print for exporting handouts to PDF

I'm also really missing to be able to export handouts as pdf, especially as this would allow to export several slides on one page. 
Request 92299 actually goes further in this feature request, but is related


Comment 6 Oliver 2016-05-12 15:30:48 UTC
Actually I'm not sure if "handouts" is the right name, what I would consider usefull is the feature that already exists when printing and which is called in the French version "prospectus", and which allows for printing how many slides on one page and their relative order. This prints only the slides, without a space for notes
Comment 7 Ljiljan 2016-05-12 21:32:43 UTC
But I don't see it in Export PDF Dialog?
Comment 8 Oliver 2016-05-13 12:05:23 UTC
Yes, that's what I mean : this exists in printing, but not for exporting pdf's
Comment 9 Ljiljan 2016-05-13 16:25:02 UTC
and there is difference in of PDF Export Dialog and PDF generated by Printing Dialog. In my cases, PDF generated by printing dialog is much larger (usually few MB) while those generated by Export Dialog (although, only one slide per page) is up to 500 kb.

List is probably already closed..
